The Empirical Stance Vs. The Critical Attitude, Darrell Patrick Rowbottom Aug 2005

The Empirical Stance Vs. The Critical Attitude, Darrell Patrick Rowbottom

Staff Publications

Van Fraassen has recently argued that empiricism can be construed as a stance, involving commitments, attitudes, values, and goals, in addition to beliefs and opinions. But this characterisation emerges from his recognition that to be an empiricist cannot be to believe, or decide to commit to belief in, a foundational proposition, without removing any basis for a non-dogmatic empiricist critique of other philosophical approaches, such as materialism.

「精神」與「自然」 : 楊慈湖心學研究, Canpeng Zhao Jul 2005

「精神」與「自然」 : 楊慈湖心學研究, Canpeng Zhao

Theses & Dissertations

陸象山的門人楊簡(1141-1226),字敬仲,諡文元,號慈湖,是南宋後期 最有影響的儒家。他的意義不僅限於南宋,而且貫穿大半部明代的儒學史。隨 著王學的興起,慈湖心學在明代中後期得以復興。比起陸象山來,王陽明與慈 湖有更多的共鳴,慈湖心學也因此受到王學論敵的激烈攻擊。在陽明身後,慈 湖心學盛極一時,影響之大,莫或過之。

慈湖在宋明儒學史中具有舉足輕重的地位,而學界過去的研究較為薄弱, 近年出現的幾部新著,在理論分析的深入與貼切、史實鈎沈的廣博與詳確等方 面,仍有不足之處。論文根據現存慈湖全部著作,立足文獻本身,仔細梳理其 思想演進的脈絡,以整個宋明理學為背景,注重思想源流的比較,以“精神” 與“自然”二者為綱領,對其心學思想進行切實詳盡的解釋、分析與評估。論 文後附錄《慈湖箸述新攷》,對慈湖箸作的存佚、刊刻、流傳、輯佚、箸作孱名 等問題進行詳確的攷察。
